About the Author

Dr. Satyanarayana Dasa, born in 1954, was drawn to the spiritual traditions of his home country India since his childhood. After receiving a postgraduate degree in 1978 from IIT Delhi and working in the United States for four years, he returned to India. There he studied the formal systems of Indian philosophy known as Ṣaḍ-darśana under the direct guidance of his guru Śrī Haridāsa Śāstrī Mahārāja and Swami Śyāma Saraṇa Maharaja.

This education was taken up in the traditional manner for more than 25 years, while he dedicated himself as a practitioner of bhakti-yoga. In 1991, he accepted the traditional Vaiṣṇava order of renounced life, bābājī-veṣa. His main focus has been on the works of Jīva Gosvāmī, particularly on translating the Ṣaṭ Sandarbhas, into English and commenting on them. He also earned four śāstric degrees and received both a law degree and a PhD in Sanskrit from Agra University.

Dr. Satyanarayana Dasa is the director of the Jiva Institute of Vedic Studies in Vrindavan, India. He is a visiting professor at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. In 2013, he was honored by the president of India, Pranab Mukherjee, for his extraordinary contribution in presenting Vedic culture and philosophy, both nationally and internationally.

    If you cannot to do good to others at least don’t think of harming others, and certainly never do anything to harm others. To do welfare to others you need some thing – money, power, knowledge etc., but you need nothing to not harm others.
